Congratulations to Law Tiger’s Geoffrey Trachtenberg, listed once again as one of Arizona’s Top 100 Lawyers by Arizona Business magazine.
Each year, Arizona Business magazine publishes a list of the top 100 lawyers in Arizona. These lawyers are chosen by industry experts and the selection process is a daunting one. Over 1,000 lawyers are examined for this list. Selections are narrowed down and ultimately chosen based on the lawyer’s professional success, impact on his or her law firm, impact on the community, and impact on the legal profession.
Only the best of the best are included in Arizona Business magazine list and it is one of Arizona’s most distinguished legal honors. In fact, of the 100 attorneys selected, only six practice in the area of personal injury and wrongful death, and none focus just on motorcycle injury.
Since graduating from the University of California, Berkeley in 1997, Geoff has been a devoted advocate for injured motorcycle victims and their families in Arizona. He is licensed to practice in 4 states: Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Utah. He focuses his practice mainly on motorcycle personal injury litigation and appeals. He is Board-Certified in personal injury and wrongful death litigation—a certification less than 1% of attorneys achieve. He was also recently listed in “Best Lawyers in America” by U.S. News & World Report and selected for inclusion in the “Super Lawyers—Top 50” in Arizona.
Geoff has spent his career with the Law Tigers taking on large insurance companies and corporations on behalf of the “little guy” and winning. Some of the firm’s most notable cases include a $4.5 million award for a trucking accident victim who sustained a below-the-knee amputation and a $2.75 million award for a motorcyclist who sustained permanent hip and arm injuries after a catastrophic accident.
Geoff is also a leader in the Arizona legal community. Recently, Geoff was chosen by his colleagues to serve as President of the State Bar of Arizona. In this role he leads the Board of Governors and oversees the State Bar’s $15 million annual budget.
Geoff is also President-Elect and an executive director of the Arizona Association for Justice, the primary organization devoted to protecting the rights of injured persons. And, consistent with Law Tiger’s mission to help our community, Geoff volunteers for numerous organizations throughout Arizona, including the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS and the Arizona Brain Injury Association. Geoff also routinely provides legal services to poor and indigent, assisting them with legal issues free of charge.
The Law Tigers are very proud of Geoff’s accomplishments, and we’re delighted to be able to offer our injured clients and their families such venerable legal expertise.
